A Model Approach to a National Problem?

In many schools O&M specialists struggle to get permission to take their students off-campus where real learning can take place. Hear how California O&Mers have tackled this issue through legislation! 

“Out and About in California:  Legislative Advocacy for O&M and ECC Instruction in the School System”
Presented by:  Dr. Nicholas Casias and Brenda Naimy of Cal State LA; and Jaye Shupin of the California Association of O&M Specialists (CAOMS)

Across California, many Local Education Agencies (LEAs) impose significant restrictions on community-based O&M instruction.  Many LEAs limit or prevent O&M Specialists from transporting students to community sites.  It is also common for LEAs to limit O&M lessons to school hours.  This presentation outlines our success in passing legislation to rectify these problems, upholding the right of children with visual impairments to O&M evaluation and instruction throughout the community according to individual need.
